Mammogram

Schedule a Mammogram 

Mammography is the best tool for detecting early breast cancer. According to the American Cancer Society (Jan 12, 2023), the rate of death from breast cancer has steadily decreased since 1989, with an overall decline of 43% through 2020. Earlier detection due to increased awareness, screenings and better treatments, led to this result.

What is a mammogram?

As part of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, Beacon is able to offer full access to the Mayo Clinic health library so you can learn more about mammograms and why they are critical to detecting breast cancer early. Spend some time reading up on mammograms and then develop a list of questions to discuss with your provider or technologist before your next screening.

Digital 3D scans

Digital mammography, including 3D mammography, is the gold standard in the detection of breast cancer.

With cancer, early detection is critical. This is why Beacon offers digital 3D mammography – the most advanced breast cancer screening tool available.

These mammography procedures are examples of the services available at our Breast Care Centers. If you need follow-up treatment or additional tests, you can transition to other procedures and tests as needed.

Breast self-exam guide

Finding a lump or change in your breast does not mean you have cancer. Eight out of 10 breast lumps are not cancerous. Only your doctor can be sure. Report any change promptly. Early detection is the best defense.

Catching breast cancer early for people like Finess

Finess Smith had been vigilant about getting a screening mammogram every year since she was 35. Not because of a family history, but because she believed in them and knows that early detection leads to a high cure rate — around 90 percent. Then COVID struck and caused her to miss her first one in years. But she was determined to get back on track.“When things started up again, the first thing I did was schedule my mammogram … and that’s when they caught the cancer.”
